Taurus Wines: Wine School 2020

Join us at the shop on the last Friday of every month in 2020 for a series of informal, but informative standalone wine education classes! Each session will focus on a key topic and the practical aspects of enjoying wine - perfect for budding enthusiasts or seasoned oenophiles alike. Come along to one class or sign-up for a range: by the end you'll be able to identify the main wine styles, understand the principles of matching food and wine, and be confident choosing a bottle in a shop or restaurant. The classes would also make the ideal gift for someone who wants to know more about wine - vouchers can be packaged in a presentation box to make your gift that extra bit special.

All classes run from 7pm to 9pm on the last Friday of every month at the Taurus Wines shop. All course materials, wine samples, water and water biscuits are included in the price. To book a class or purchase a voucher, please call us on 01483 54 84 84 or visit the store and speak to one of our staff.

Taurus Wines: One-Day Wine Academy 2020

Our One-Day Wine Academy is perfect if you want to condense all your learning into just one session. After an introduction on how to taste wine like a professional, you’ll explore some of the world’s classic grape varieties, styles and regions. By the end of the day you should feel confident with the understanding of what’s in your glass, on a wine list or on our shelves... The One-Day Wine Academy runs from 11am to 4pm at Taurus Wines in spring and autumn on either of the dates below. A minimum of 14 wines will be tasted during the day. The class includes a light buffet lunch.
